This is a fun challenge inspired by my book Jewelry Designs from Nature, to celebrate now that it's out making its way into the big craft stores like Hobby Lobby and Michaels.
If you haven't had a chance to pick up the book it's packed full of projects using art beads from my favorite artists. Along with 30 projects the book includes a few articles on finding inspiration for your nature inspired designs. I share my ideas of creating jewelry inspired by poetry and include photos from my favorite gardens, woodland trails and beaches. And that is where this challenge finds it's roots!
This is a creative blog challenge. 10 winners will be sent a packet and have a few weeks to create a piece of jewelry inspired by their packets. On July 6th we'll have a blog hop featuring the results. We'll also have voting for your favorite challenge piece during the blog hop and giveaway beads from the book!
I'm going to pick 10 participants randomly from the comments below. Each participant will receive a packet that contains:
1. A few Humblebeads featured in the book
2. A nature-inspired poem
3. A photo for color and design inspiration
The packets will be themed and you could get a garden, woodlands or sea set!
Winners will be picked June 6th. Packets will mail on June 11th. The blog hop reveal will happen here on July 6th.
1. You must have a blog and plan to join in the blog hop to enter.
2. Tweet or Facebook about this challenge and leave a comment here letting us know you've helped spread the word.
